Can someone tell me what prop has worked properly for you for a Suzuki 90, for light to mid load on a 22? Mine is 2003.

I have a similar vintage outboard and did a search on the C-brats site and this is what I found:

We had a 90 hp Suzuki the 2litre one same block as the 115hp we put a S/S 14by 18 pitch it was perfect 35-36 mph and 4-5 mpg also revved up to 5800rpm

We had a 06 Suzuki 90hp 2litre not to be confused with the newer 1.6 litre 90 hp suzuki. we ran a 3bladed S/S prop 14by 18 pitch my boat was a 1999 c-dory cruiser set up for more day trips with twin 18 gallon fuel tanks top speed was 36mph at 5800rpm cruise nice at 20mph I think about 4000rpm

As far as the CD-22 is concerned, about a 14-17 inch pitch range with a 13 to 13 5/8 or so diameter seems to be the agreed upon common ground unless you have a Suzuki 90 with a 2.60:1 gear ratio (our outboards do) where a 19 inch pitch may be within range.

P.S. Please post what you decide and how it works for you.

I have a CD22 and a 90hp Suzi, 2008 (last year of the older style). The boat came with a three blade 14" dia, 19" pitch prop which I considered a bit too much as WOT only reached 5200rpm. I switched to a four blade 13.75" dia, 15" pitch prop which may be a tiny bit under proped for a light load but is more efficient at most speeds (up to 19 knots).

Thanks for the generous replies. I am afraid I misled you. The boat is 2003, and the engine would be 2023 or 2024. So it is the new model of the DF 90.
Does someone have one of those who can guide me in prop choice? The older motors may not be a good comparison.

I believe that the older motors had the 2 liter block and were the low end of the 115/140 Suzuki's and the newer are the 1.5 liter block more in line with the 60, and 70 blocks. The gearing was different.
